Providers, ranging from small private training companies to large FE Colleges and Universities deliver our qualifications. Each one has to pass stringent quality assurance criteria to make sure they have the necessary expertise and resources to deliver them and provide you with a good learning experience.
As a learner who is taking or about to take an Open Awards qualification we want you to make sure you know all about it. A List of the Qualifications we offer can be found here. This will give you information on the structure and content of the qualification as well as how it is assessed. More details are available from the staff at your centre.
Our Access to Higher Education Diploma is a specialist qualification aimed at giving learners the qualifications they need to progress onto University. All providers running this course have specialist knowledge and experience about HE and can help you choose the right course for your needs. A list of providers who run the Access to HE Diploma can be found in our Access to HE Directory so that you can chose the one that is right for you.
All of our qualifications are credit-based, which means that you can build these up and add them together to achieve the full award. We have produced a handy leaflet on credit-based qualifications, which can be found here. Because our qualifications have been designed like this it means that you may be able to build up your qualification through taking courses at more than one provider. Since 2008 all learners have been issued with a Unique Learner Number (ULN), which you can use to track what you have achieved and what steps you might need to take to achieve your career goals.
